I grew up in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley of Virginia before trading it in for the suburban charm of New Jersey, where I graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in Architecture and a certificate in Urban Studies. Here, I came to realize my true passion for architecture as the ultimate interdisciplinary field. When I wasn’t in the studio, I could usually be found in the woods canoeing or backpacking with Princeton’s Outdoor Action Program, which conducts the country’s largest outdoor freshman orientation program annually. As a Leader Trainer, I spent ample time helping others develop their leadership skills, practicing experiential learning, and mentoring peers through their transition to college and adult life.
Since college, I have spent two years in China working full-time with ambitious young people hoping to pursue higher education internationally. As stressful as the college admissions process can be, I believe it offers a pivotal opportunity for reflection and self-discovery. I love being a part of this transformational process and hope to help more students like you!
